Sad year on so many levels. What do you think is the best show from this year? Personally I think the entire year is garbage musically, however, I think the boys pulled out a nice gig in Seattle in May. The Scarlet>Fire is truly inspiring. Some folks think it's overrated and will lean toward night 3 in salt lake. Since it's a dog shit year, it might be nice to find some postives because I gave up sampling because it was too frustrating attmepting to find quality performances.

6-30-1995 at 3 rivers in Pitt. This is the best show of the summer (probably the whole year). The reason it doesnt get more love is because the recording on here is not so excellent. Ive been searching for years for a better version, but I actually dont think one exists. I've even emailed David Lemieux at the Vault to see if anything is in there, but he hasnt responded. The show is notable for the second set rain songs and an amazing SOTM. Then, of course, a rocking Gloria encore that had that old piece of shit stadium literally shaking.

I love my old stuff, but I love the 80's and 90's a lot.. well okay i don't know about much past '91.. i will though soon, at the rate i am going

It's not an Official DVD, it's an amatur one but pretty good. Hiroller's source is where I DL'd it i think....
Then I suppose it could be burned onto a DVD(?)

While I will respect your opinion, I think that because of the sole fact that it -was- the last year in 30 years, that that alone makes it somewhat legendary.. I don't know about the musical quality though..

At least technically speaking(!)

I don't know about the rest of the band, I probably pay a bit too much attention to Jerry, but..

I watched some of Soldier Field dvd, and Jerry put himself into the music, more so than I have ever seen, in any dvd. And yeah, sure.. the music during '95 probably -is- infact the worst quality of all 30 years.. but By then, i'm guessing they were now set in stone as a nostalgia act.

But come on, you gotta give it to jerry during soldier field, I have not heard any other 95 shows that I can recall off the top of my noggin but...He is playing his music like he is aware that he is going to do.. hell, maybe he WAS already dead, if any of you guys catch what i mean.

While I agree that 1995 wasn't their best year, I really don't think it was their worst. To me, it seems like Jerry was really starting to get better, his playing wasn't great, but it wasn't as bad as he had been. I'm not really one to comment on this, though, since I don't listen to much post-coma Dead.

"I don't know about the rest of the band, I probably pay a bit too much attention to Jerry, but.."

Watch the drums from that Soldier Field video you mentioned and you can see that Billy and Mickey were still having a good time and playing like in the old days.

thank you for the link. it was kinda painful though. The last time we saw him was on 6/30, like 10 days before, and I dont think he looked half that bad. but that was nice for the so many roads.

I don't know if you were replying to me or not Max. All I know is I've been digging this one for awhile with no thoughts to what year.

I guess it's apples and oranges when it comes to the dead, as it should be. We will all never agree on a "best" year or "best" version. I guess that's what makes the dead who they are. As for the soldier field gig, I think it's pretty bad and have a tough time listening to it. I only keep a copy for historical purposes. I will never tell anyone they are wrong and shouldn't dabble in everything this site has to offer. I just think there are many yaars you should try before experimenting with 1995.

Gotta say I really don't like this year but I do come back to it occasionally as I would late Charlie Parker or Billie Holiday. The best gigs were played on Spring tour. They are few----The Playin'>Uncle John's night at the Omni, the first Pittsburgh gig, some of the stuff in Memphis (The Shakedown is actually pretty good considering) but as someone who was there I feel the Seattle show is over-rated. I've talked about this elsewhere (in a review). I had a great time and it my third to last show (my journey came to an end in Portland), but Jerrry sounds like he's struggling during the Help>Slip>Frank.

Hey, Mr. Tell. I've been doing a show and raising the kids and it keeps me away from the site. But my show closed on Sunday so you'll be hearing a lot more from me in the future.

I did post last week re: a few things but they were older posts so you may not have seen them. Just click on my name to see what you've missed.

The Vegas run was nice as I've said before, but it was precious to me because the 21st was my 36th Bday and I got backstage.

The Unbroken was sweet and the Days was large.

pat: I am shocked! :O i would have thought that you woulda heard of 7/9/95 long before you ever heard of and actually bought VFTV 4.. [which i just gotta say again, is a great dvd. I haven't really heard many other people on this forum other than you that seem to enjoy it lots].

Yes lobsta, i agree. the 7/9/95 is very hard to watch. i have a post somewhere regarding that dvd.. and I said that I never wanted to watch anymore of it, after seeing the So Many Roads.. god, Jerry looked decrepid. =/

Very tough indeed. i think we had a similar discussion before but thought I'd revisit. I recently threw in some dead video. the first being downhill from here. Watching Jer smile and bop through GDRFB is a really great sight and you can tell he is really into it and enjoys what he does. By contrast, days later, I watched a bootleg video from MSG 1994. The "supposed" legendary eyes of the world where he breaks a string that stretches it out to about 23 minutes. I can tell you right now he makes no eye contact with anyone in the band and stares at his feet the entire song. Big difference in the quality to say the least.
